Hello November

I can't even believe it's November! This year has been a whirlwind and now I completely understand when adults say "The older you get, the faster time flies!"....I think that means I'm an adult now. I have a lot of hope for this month. I think it's gonna be pretty great. I'm not sure why but I can feel it in my bones. 

Unfortunately it's still about 80 degrees here in Southern California and it's quite confusing when all of the shops are putting out their Christmas decorations and cozy sweaters.  Lets hope that we get a cold front in the near future. 

I purchased my first Christmas gift today and I'm feeling ahead of the game...well, my game because usually I'm out shopping the week before and it becomes super stressful. My goal is to get everything done by the first week of December but we'll see.

Spoon into 24 muffin cups  and bake 20-22 minutes until
